CasioCasio Exilim Pro EX-F1 : During the Casio press event, held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in Borchland centre of Golfclub Amstelborgh, Casio offered the possibility of taking pictures with the brand-new Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 digital camera. And no; it wasn’t a pre-production model; Casio presented the first full production models of this camera worldwide. The Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 is a 6 Megapixel digital camera with a heavy burden of expectation on its shoulders. Nowadays we find increasingly more cameras with a resolution of 8 Megapixels or more. Casio however are convinced, just as we are, that a 6 Megapixel camera suffices to make beautiful prints up to 100x160cm. The new Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 is not breaking new ground in relation to Megapixels but changed tack…

The Casio EX-F1 incorporates a Sony CMOS sensor. The new Casio camera has the appearance of a DSLR camera, but Casio do not want to imply that the Exilim Pro F1 should be considered as a substitute for a digital SLR camera. A DSLR camera offers functions that the Casio Pro F1 lacks, but on the other hand the Casio F1 offers functions we have never seen on DSLR cameras up to now. One simple example is the possibility of recording movies. But that is not the actual reason the Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 should be considered as a break-through. There are two main reasons; shooting 60 still images per second and recording movies with a frame rate of 1200 frames per second. This incredible speed was never available before in a digital camera.






Casio Exilim Pro multifunctional ring
The Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 has a solid feel and a perfect hand-fit. There are two ways of zooming in; through the multifunctional ring on the front and through the zoom controller around the shutter button. Manual focus can also be carried out by the multifunctional ring. When you use the ring for zooming in, you will notice a delay in response, meaning; zooming is noticeably delayed. This is not the case when using the zoom controller.

The Casio Exilim Pro F1 has two flash possibilities at its disposal; a Xenon and a LED flash. It's up to the user to select and set one of the flash functions. The Xenon flash is available when taking one to eight frames per second. From eight up to sixty frames per second the LED flash is put into action because a LED flash does not have to charge and is therefore capable of keeping up with the incredible speed of the camera.

Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 Camera settings
A CS dial and a mode dial are available on top of the camera to select various modes. The left one lets you set the flash, single shot and burst mode of 60 fps among other things. The dial on the right lets you choose from Best Shot mode, Auto, A, S and M. Best Shot is also found in Casio's compact cameras. Casio have selected a number of situations and adjusted the settings accordingly. That way you don't have to worry about white balance, aperture, shutter speed or contrast since the camera already took care of all these settings.

Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 - Recording movies
The Casio Pro EX-F1 enables recording movies with a frame rate of 1200 frames per second. However, when recording at 1200fps the resolution decreases considerably, making the movies still suitable for online publications, but not for playback on a large screen. The 300 frames per second mode is perfect for playback on larger screens. If you want to enjoy movie playback on your television screen, you should go for the HD mode; it records in real-time and allows playback on an HD television. The HD mode is of superb quality and will let you thoroughly enjoy your movie-watching. Casio have applied an additional button and switch for recording a movie to prevent you from finding the camera in movie mode when you want to take a picture.
